I made a tragic error and erased the extensions manager from my IMac. Now, I can't get the computer to boot up. It just stays on the gray screen. I've tried using the open apple+s method, which brings up the command console (not sure if I've got the lingo down right), and I've tried everything, but nothing works. I need to be able to reset the system so I can go in and reinstall the os (os X Leopard). Any advice here? I'm like a blind person wandering the streets of NY in search of a needle here.
I actually tried that many times, but each time, the computer just spits the disc out. I've also tried booting in safe mode+v, but once the screen is full, it just stops and does nothing else. I've been looking for some sort of method, using unix command prompts, to try and erase the computer, or reset everything, or at least be able to get into the computer. I know all the hardware was working before I erased the ext mgr, which I did to try and get rid of what I thought was a virus. Turns out, it wasn't.
I have never used Unix before and only heard of it at the start of the week. But ny new job requires me to use the Unix/Linux command, and i need an introduction for a total beginer... are there any intro videos or books you would recomend?
